  The mail 'problem' IMHO is that review process takes long time and 
it's really annoying if your theme is rejected several times in a row. I 
think all these complains and concerns will drop out when(if) the 
process become quicker -  1, 2 days for review is reasonable time which 
anyone can wait.
